Sean & Bobbi

This was a fun wedding! Bobbi and Sean tied the knot on 06/07/08, which turned out to be a very popular date. (Sorry to all those other couples who asked about my availability for that date -- it pays to book early!) This was a wedding that I had been looking forward to because I knew it was going to be a killer party. It turned out to be very sentimental too. These two have a great bunch of friends and family, many of whom traveled from Bobbi's tiny hometown in Iowa to be here for their special day. And unless you live in a cave I'm sure you've heard that Iowa is battling massive floods right now, and those same people are hard hit, so if you want to help you can donate here: http://american.redcross.org/site/PageServer?pagename=ggl_main&s_subsrc=DonateToRedCross&s_src=F7FWE001&gclid=CO28ufeUh5QCFRZjnAodnjN_WA I made a donation via the internet and it took about 30 seconds -- easy peasy.

I had a great time documenting your day Sean and Bobbi -- warmest congratulations! And to those in the midwest suffering through all this flooding, please know we're pulling for you!

I love a long, dramatic veil!

Bobbi & Sean hired a party bus to take them bar hopping between the ceremony and reception. What a fun couple!

First stop: Tony's, where they first met! Who says you can't meet your soulmate in a bar?

I call this one "Bud Light With Bridal Couple"

Bottoms up!

The cake was snickerdoodle with cinnamon filling. I'm not really a cinnamon person, but I swear this was the yummiest wedding cake I've ever tasted!

Phantom Canyon always serves such top notch food. I love doing weddings there!

The best man, Kyle, jokingly had one of the groomsmen hold up cue cards for his toast.

But then he got a little choked up delivering it! This was a great moment.
